Events will range from Pictionary-style "draw-offs" to lessons about cartooning in wartime to hands-on tips about making a living doing something as unique as visual satire. There will be performances, pictures and politics from left, right, center, up and down. (As well as opportunities to buy signed art and merchandise from your favorite cartoonist.)
